He cannot rule out that today's, 10th round could be the last - RIA Novosti.
"Geneva talks are getting into a deadlock, because the only issue being discussed in accordance with Medvedev-Sarkozy plan - the issue of necessity to sign a non-aggression agreement between Georgia on one side and Abkhazia and South Ossetia on the other, - isn't supported by the Georgian side. This meeting can turn out to be the last in the framework of Geneva Talks. And it's not the meaning of South Ossetia alone," Chochiyev said.
Today another, the 10th round of Geneva Talks on security and stability in Caucasus begins.
They will be traditionally organized in format of two working groups - on security issues and on humanitarian problems, including refugees and IDPs.
Russian delegation will raise an issue of restoration of military potential of Georgia, able to lead to aggravation of situation in Caucasus.
The Russian delegation will be headed by deputy Foreign Minister Grigoriy Karasin.
In the view of Russian diplomats, accelerated re-arming of Saakashvili regime threatens with new wave of tension and appearance of new threats to neighbouring countries, in the first line, Abkhazia and South Ossetia.
Russian delegation also intends to raise issue of the sooner signing of legally binding non-aggression treaties between Georgia, South Ossetia and Abkhazia.
Boris Chochiyev, promised to present "incontrovertible evidence" of Georgia's being prepared for another war against Abkhazia and South Ossetia.
Yesterday Georgian mass media reported that delegates from Tbilisi intend to discuss necessity to replace Russian border guards with international police forces in the territory of Abkhazia and
